Lance Armstrong: USPS Should Have Known I Was Lying

The United States Postal Service (USPS) is suing Lance Armstrong for the recovery of $40 million in sponsorship fees. The civil lawsuit was filed under the False Claims Act.  Meanwhile, Armstrong is fighting back by saying the USPS should have known he was cheating. Armstrong states in court records:

Although the government now pretends to be aggrieved by these allegations, its actions at the time are far more telling: Did it immediately fire the Postal Service Team? Did it suspend the team pending an investigation? Did it refer the matter to its phalanx of lawyers and investigators at the Department of Justice for review? It did not.

If you find Armstrong’s comments less than amazing, take into account his insistence  he was not cheating, and his immense political power. He threatened to break virtually anyone who crossed him, including former teammates. Armstrong denied cheating up to the very last moment, including under oath.

What a ‘bag.

 

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
